Introduction to Proteomics

Proteome is defined as the total set of proteins expressed in a given cell or biological sample at a given time. The study of proteome is termed “proteomics”. Proteomics research includes the separation, identification, qualitative, quantitative, and functional characterization of the entire protein profile of a given cell, tissue, and/or organism. In this chapter, we describe the processes of commonly used proteomics techniques like gel-based separation and mass-spectrometry.
